Casualty at Sea

On the night of February 9, 1969, LCDR Meyers was preparing to launch on an attack strike mission into North Vietnam in his Skyhawk. During the catapult launch, the aircraft’s nose gear collapsed and the jet crashed into the sea. Search and rescue helicopters and boats were on the scene within minutes, but were unable to find the pilot. Meyers was listed in a casualty status of Killed/Body Not Recovered.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCDR Roger Allen Meyers, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

Grandpa, I never met you but I am proud to call myself your grandson. You proudly served your country to the end, and I hope to make you proud when I follow in yours, and my fathers footsteps and become a Naval Aviator. Today is the anniversary of your death, and I know grandma and mom are having a emotional time, as am I, but I will see you some day in Heaven and tat brings me comfort. I love you grandpa, and may you rest in peace.
